reverend wright had with the president of the united states since he took the oath of office? >> you know, they haven't had any. president obama was clear that mr. wright's views didn't reflect the president's views. this required moral leadership on mitt romney's part to stand up to the extreme voices in his party. once again, he didn't rise to the occasion. one of the things he tried to do today is equate this hateful attack with a simple discussion of governor romney's economic record we had in this campaign. we've seen this from romney before. he didn't stand up to one of the symbolic heads of the republican party, rush limbaugh when he made those hateful comments against sandra fluke. we've been clear whether supporter of the president or person that used this rhetoric, and romney didn't stand up. >> he said he repudiated this style of campaign. do you believe him? >> he was asked later in the day about his comments earlier in the year about reverend wright you played not too long ago. he said he stood behind them. time and time again, he had the opportunity to stand up to the extrem

for the past three and a half years. how much contact has he had with the president of the united states since he took the oath of office? >> they haven't had any. the president was clear that reverend wright's views that were played again and again didn't reflect the president's views. >> critics want to know if barack obama assimilated sinister view s of jeremiah wright. they try to create a direct line. the attack dog exposed by the new york city created story boards to show how barack obama undermined the united states of america because he was influenced by jeremiah wright. they say he's apologized for america. >> president obama's foreign policy is one that america is another nation with flag. president obama apologizes for america. it's time for us to be strong as a nation. >> it's not true. president obama has never apologized for america and he sure hasn't been shy in taking out its enemies. if president obama answered questioned about jeremiah wright four years ago and he hasn't had contact with him since, why bring him up now. here is sean hannity. >> i think he's far more in view t

president obama. >> i don't know whether barack obama was born in the united states or not. i don't know that. but i do know this -- that in his heart, he's not an american. he's just not an american. >> "in his heart, he's not an american." coffman didn't know he was being recorded. four days later, he released this statement. "i misspoke. i apologize. i have confidence in president obama's citizenship and legitimacy as president of the united states. i don't believe the president shares my belief in american exceptionalism." exceptionalism? don't you have to have the facts to be exceptional? or that's gone too? oh, he misspoke. how do you misspeak when you say, "i do know this -- he's not an american"? it sounds like coffman said exactly what he wanted to say. coffman laid low after releasing this statement. he just kind of wanted the whole thing to go away. but a reporter from denver's kusa television won't let the story die. >> the congressman is usually willing to talk about anything. he's been on 9 news 16 times in the past year, weighing in on everything from wildfires to memorial

to prove he's a united states citizens. >> i was amazed when i got the letter. i've been voting since i was 18 years old i've never had any trouble. >> you have to be thinking what's going on here. he was joined by two congressmen calming on governor scott to suspend the voter purge. he's is congressman hastings. >> who made the decision to put these names on a list? why did you make that decision? when did you make that decision? and if you made that decision recently when mr. intercola received the letter, why didn't you do it a long time before this election? >> the total is 180,000 voters have been identified as potential noncitizens using a dmv database, which does not automatically update someone becoming a citizen. in miami county alone, more than 1600 voters were called noncitizens and already 359 people on the list have provided proof of their citizenship. in other words, florida is purging voters from the rolls based on a flawed system. the purge is hitting the hispanic community the hardest. senator bill nelson of hispanic are under attack. the most precious right of all of o

't correct every question. it wasn't a question. it was a statement about the president of the united states. i'll give you an example. when nancy pelosi got the gavel in 2006, there was a lot of liberals that wanted dick cheney and george bush brought up on criminal war crimes, right. don't you remember that conversation. nancy pelosi said impeachment is off the table. she knew it wasn't achievable. the democrats have had to take their folks and put them off to the side and slow things down. mitt romney couldn't do that. i say it's all part of their plan. tonight's question, does mitt romney have the character to stand up to the conspiracy theorists and the gop. text a for yes. text b for no. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. i'm joined by congresswoman maxine waters of california. >> delighted to be here. >> what did we learn about mitt romney today and what did we learn about the republicans campaign? your thoughts. >> you nailed him again. he's been consistent in lack of being grounded in anything. what does this man believe? what will he stand up for? what is his leaders

and singapore and around the united states and said, gosh, in the schools the highest performing in the world, their classroom sizes are about the same in the united states. >> did he say around the world? you mean mitt romney has a worldly view of education and not american? in other words, forget the real life experiences of teachers in the classroom, mitt romney will liston what a think tank tells him. he doesn't have to do anything and he doesn't know anything about overcrowding or underfunding when it comes to schools and what it will do to them. romney doesn't seem to care, just like he didn't care when he was the governor of massachusetts. in his first year, romney cut education funding to close a $1.2 billion budget gap. the cuts caused local taxes to go up. they also caused layoffs of more than 14,000 teachers, police officers, librarians and other public employees. in 1999, mitt romney said, we don't need to spend more on education. in his book titled "no apology", romney wrote the effort to reduce classroom size may hurt education more than it helps. this is why there were proteste

the president was born in the united states. he has all the documentation, is this just another form of racism being played out in a different form? >> from your mouth to the americans ears. the man has shown every documentation of his legitimate birth in hawaii. he's been clear about it. he's been consistent about it. the officials in hawaii have satisfied that this is the case. they have stood behind the president. the president has reiterated the fact that his document is legitimate and gave the long form for us to see. what in the world do these people want except to raise the dander of beknowing americans and americans. it's just another way to chip away at his authenticity. >> it's this narrative that president obama is the other in all of this. they're trying to justify it any way they can. the secretary of state of arizona just a few days ago was talking about all these e-mail he's been getting and he's got to do his job and follow up on this. now we got a little 180 going on here. what do you make of that? what's the proper response to that? to keep calling these people out for what t
